We have heard from our good friends at Stand Up Frederick that a group called ProEnglish has descended upon our fair county. First the Scientologists, and now this?! It’s hard to believe that a group even exists that makes it their mission to remove bilingual education from schools and to ensure that English is the only language spoken anywhere in this fair land of ours. On their website they even have a handy link all about our county’s ordinance. Take a peek and make sure you look at the end especially:
” Thank you for defending our English langage heritage in Maryland”?! Is this for real? This group’s mission is to advocate for the sole use of English and they cannot even spell the word language correctly? (Honestly, the whole post is a hot mess, but spelling the word language incorrectly is especially egregious.) And according to this Huffington Post article, this isn’t the first time they are guilty of misusing the language.
Let us tell you carpetbaggers something about heritage in our Great State of Maryland. Our heritage consists of ripping apart crustaceans on a warm summer day, shouting the “O” extra loud while singing our Nation’s Anthem, and telling people our state is like a “mini” America. Our heritage does not consist of cutting our newest citizens off from information just because they didn’t spontaneously learn English while crossing the border. So please, rational citizens of Frederick County let your voice be heard on July 21 and let’s repeal this thing.
